“Remember no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

 

We are the captain of our own ship. We determine what goes on, what comes in and what we allow to happen.  There maybe some who would say, fate has its ways that could turn things around for us.  Yes, that maybe true but how you react to that determine what will be the outcome of that situation.  For no one has the power over you, unless you let them.

I remember my friend saying that I shouldn’t be just a doormat.  I maybe the one in need at some point but that doesn’t mean they can walk all over me.  I should be able to draw the line between being good at what I do and just doing what is asked of me to do.  Just like at work, of course everyone wants to be that dutiful employee.  This is so because you’d want your boss to notice you in a good way.  You probably would think if I do a really good job at something he would notice the skills that I have and what I am actually capable of doing.  But does that include to be at their every beckon call?  Does that involve crossing the line and making them rule over what you think, how you feel, and your notion of right and wrong?  No, by doing so you loose yourself in the process.  You become their shadow, a puppet that they can just do with whatever they please.

There should be a line, and you should know when to draw that line.  Think of it this way, if you were them would you do as they do?  Or would that seem too much?  You can be a good employee, a good follower but at the same time stay true to what you are, what you believe and what you stand for.

    1. You’re most welcome and thank you for reading it too 🙂 It was hard at first y’know, but the more I realize my worth as a person and as an individual contributor the more I see that I don’t have to agree at all times.

    1. Yeah, like sometimes when you are new at work too and you want to belong. I realized that to belong one shouldn’t bend out who you are just so everyone would like you. I guess its human nature or the need to be a part of something, right but it shouldn’t change who you are and what you believe in.

  2. It is important to find balance in all aspects of life. Who we are is important. Yes, we want to improve ourselves but not to be who others want us to be at the expense of who we are within. As you write this often happens in the workplace. When it happens we are not the only ones hurt but those who would benefit from the person we lose too.
    Thank you for sharing your wise thoughts with In Other Words.

    1. You’re very much welcome. I’d like to think that in this fast paced world we live in we have all come to adapt to the change and come into terms with things that protects a person’s individuality. No one should be imposed to do something that won’t be beneficial for them too, as a person and an individual contributor to the community.
